June 10 Evening Rush: State, city officials announce lawsuit against U.S. government

1. The State of New Mexico and City of Albuquerque are suing the U.S. government over asylum seekers. The complaint is asking a safe release policy be put back in place. That policy lets asylum seekers go to their destinations while waiting to be processed. It says right now, migrant families are being released in New Mexico communities, without help and it’s burdening local governments and nonprofits. It also asks for reimbursement.
